The Leslie Special was custom built for Leslie "The Great Leslie" Gallant III for New York to Paris race against his arch-nemesis Professor Fate. Here is my attempt to recreate this famous auto-mobile.

Cool little MOC. Judging by your reference pic you got the shape and proportions down, its just that it looks slightly big for minifig scale. Other than that, good job.  :thumbup:

Nice looking car, but this goes in Other Themes. :classic:

H'm, OK. It seemed to fit in the Adventurers theme to me.

Thanks for the kudos everyone!  :classic:

This is one of my favorite movies ever... and you made the Leslie Special really well! I hated Leslie though. Professor Fate was so much cooler. ;P

Hello!

That's a fantastic realization of the Great Leslie's car! :sweet: I can not remember how often I saw this movie, it's simply great. I especially like the tyre construction, a clever way to get the white tyres from the original car in the movie. :classic:

It would be great if you continued in the spirit of the movie and would bring us Professor Fate's Hannibal for example. Professor Fate constructed many nice machines which I'd really enjoy seeing bricked. :classic:

Cheers,

~ Christopher
